    If you are a droid you may not participate in this thread. We don't allow your kind in here. :D

    This is just a little blast from the past (epic fail) ahmm cough........recollection fun. The topics are pretty shallow so I figured I'd just combine the two. So, feel free to post a pic of your favorite OT ship and why. Also feel free to elaborate on your favorite OT moment and why.

    "We would be honored if you would join us".

    As for my favorite moment- there's just something about Luke finally gaining ground against Vader- but at the cost of giving in to his anger- that really just captivates me. It's such a complex emotion, to see him physically overcome the hulking space samurai after all this time, but at the risk of losing everything that's good in him.

    The race to the Falcon to escape Hoth (including the only-seen-once deployment of the cockpit cannon) had me absolutely glued to my seat as a kid.

    I still get a huge nostaligia kick from that, plus these two sequences...

    I have a ridiculous love for the Lambda-class shuttle, and I love the opening sequence of RotJ.

    As for favorite moment, well that's VERY hard to determine, but...

    I like B-wings, especially after the Rebels episode "Wings of The Master"

    I really dig the a wing and B wing, but the Lambda is probably my favorite.

    My favorite moment is in ANH, when the music starts back up in the Trench Run.
